on muslims..it's natural but before u can have several wives..your original wife..1st wife must approve or somewhat agree that u can have other wives besides her and i knew that government on arab countries are strict on implementing it..u must have a job w/ a high salary inorder to approve you..i guess it's rational..

if you're gonna be in this kind of relationship you might as well be single and just have fuck buddies.

King Solomon had a whole bunch of wives and that caused his down fall. He was trying to please his wives and because of that he offended God. Soooo..... I think that story has some meaning. It's saying marry only one person because you are going to have problems if you marry more than one. There's the whole issue of jealousy, and spouses competing for attention. I think we should listen to these people who wrote the story because that is history, and it's bound to repeat itself if we marry more than one person.

Polygamy: the practice or condition of having more than one spouse, esp. wife, at one time.
Polyandry: the practice or condition of having more than one husband at one time.


I think there no problem with polygamy/polyandry.

Actually, i think that marrying someone for "the rest of your life" is a archaic concept that need to be changed.
Back in time, people was getting marry at 15 nd lived until 35. Sure, 20 years with someone is not that bad, you have the farm, the kids and much more. But what about NOW? We get married at 20-25 and live up to 85 years. How can we possibly think we gonna "stay the same" for all of those 40 years ? Impossible.

I was in open relationship before and it it worked just fine. Actually, a open relationship is more work... but have alot more communication, trust and respect than a regular one. You need to be sure that everyone feel good about it, if there problems you need to discuss them, you have to make it work. You always need to be sure where everyone stand. Its a great way to have a relationship, when its by mutual consent.

And no, it doesnt create jealousy. Not from my point of view anyway. Its all about having a healty relationship. Of course some open relationship can be abusive... and more traditionnal relationship too.

Did you have think also on the impact o a third income in the familly? Financially, polygamy could be a nice way to slipt the income and be sure everyone can eat have have a warm place to live.

As long everyone is happy, who are we to judge?

I don't think it is a real relationship if you have more than 1 significant other in your life. I just dislike polygamy .... alot, probably because I live in a place where it might not be that common and that it doesn't seem to be a relationship based on love. (I wouldn't know really, but i'm making an educated guess here x_x)

For me personally, I really don't think such a relationship could work for me because I don't think i could share my spouce, in a relationship manner, like in polygamy. I would never consider being a polygamist, I have nothing against people who practice polygamy, I just don't think I could be truely happy sharing my husband. Heh, that sounds selfish. ^-^" lol.

I don't think so. Every story I know where they had more than one wife the wives weren't too happy. For example, Rachel and Leah (don't really know if I spelled the names right) they had problems w/ being unhappy because the husband loved one and not the other. One had more children, and the other was jealous of her. So on and so forth.

as long as everybody involved agrees to the union and if the man is the provider, if he has enough money to support all his wives and their children

Cleopatra, for instance, had a harem, and was the "provider". It doesn't have to always be the man being the "bad.. uh...person". Haha, just thought of that. "Bad guy". If you say "bad girl" it means something else entirely. I suppose only men can be the "bad guy". Another prejudice against men. Well, it's an old movie villian thing, so I guess the feminists are not to blame for that. Still, it is usually men being balmed for awful things. I saw some statistic once about the spreading of HIV among popultaion groups. Homosexuals number one, married women number 2. Not the men, the women. Just the women (statistics from Norway, just so you know, also OTHER statistics showing women to be more unfaithful and having less shame about affairs I think from the interview answers shwoing extremely cold rational answers). Anyways, my point was supposed to be this: apparently it is more ok to marry one while secretively having affairs then to have a trusting loving marriage with more than one.
